Haverfordwest multi-storey car park to close ahead of transport hub construction work

Published

on

The Haverfordwest multi-storey car park at Cartlett Road will close to the public on Monday 20th June and remain out of use while the existing facility is demolished and a new Public Transport Interchange built.

Pembrokeshire Council say that following the closure, work will begin on an initial strip out of the building ahead of full demolition.

The council say letters will be sent to nearby properties and businesses, and signs are to be placed at the car park to notify travellers of the closure. Existing signage leading to the facility will also be amended.

The project to create a new Public Transport Interchange is part of Pembrokeshire County Council’s wider regeneration work to revitalise Haverfordwest town centre.

The council say the current multi-storey car park is in a poor state of repair and is an unwelcoming space at the heart of the County Town.

It is also difficult to negotiate for larger, modern vehicles so is often under-utilised.

It adds that the new Public Transport Interchange will create “a seamless journey and a clear transition for passengers using the transport facilities – including integrated bus station – encouraging people to alight and explore the town centre”.

Cllr Rhys Sinnett, Cabinet Member for Residents Services said: “The Haverfordwest Public Transport Interchange is an important project for the County Town and a significant opportunity to provide a modern facility, sensitively designed in a gateway location.

“We will aim to keep disruption to a minimum throughout the demolition and rebuild and kindly request that members of the public plan ahead when visiting Haverfordwest to consider alternative parking sites.

“The bus station has been moved to what was the Bridgend Square car park to ensure that bus services can continue throughout the demolition and rebuild phase.”
